    Citation Text: 1: Hello Brian: My husband is also Brian Thomas Dowling. His great grandfather who we think was also Brian came to Canada from Ireland. Rumour has it County Cork. It is also thought that he worked as a station agent on the railway in Northern Ireland before he came to Canada. Does any of this ring a bell with any of your family history I have been unable to find out anything about his marriage. I believe he was married in Ireland. Thanks for any information you can give me. - Chris
    2: Hi Brian: Thanks for your reply. The information I have is very sketchy as the only uncle Brian has left does not remember very much of his grandfather. The information i have is that the Brian who left Ireland was born in County Cork and worked in Northern ireland for a railway company before coming to Canada. Floyd says that he was Station Agent at an important junction between belfast ans Londonderry. Floyd also says during the war he visited some relatives near Enniskillen at a farm called Florencecourt but thinks these relatives were on his grandmother's side. Unfortunately he doesn't know her name. Brian's grandfather Thomas was the first of this Dowling family born in
    Canada and he was born June 18, 1872. The children Thomas had were named, John Arthur, Frederick Lawrence, Floyd Douglas and Gladyne Mary May. I think they were Protestant which would be unusual for Southern Ireland wouldn't it? Hope you can make some sense of this I wish i had more time to spend on this as I want to visit Ireland someday and see where both our roots are. - Chris
    3: Hi Brian: Thanks for getting back to me. Brian's Father was Frederick Lawrence. Thomas was married to an Ella May Turner. He was the first od this Dowling family to be born in Canada. I don't know Brian's wife's name but her maiden name may have been Coulter. Does any of this make sense? - Chris

    Citation Text: Dear Brian: My name is Peggy Dowling having married Paul Dowling. He is from a family of 5. Names are Brian, Gail, Sandra, Andrew and Paul. His father was Lawrence Dowling who was a prisoner of war in Hong Kong during the Second World War. He had 2 brothers named Arthur and Floyd and a sister named Gladine. Floyd is the only surviving sibling. I am interested in family histories and wonder if you know anything about my part of the Dowling family?

Narrative

Obituary:- Richard L. Dowling, 61, lifelong resident of Manhattan entered eternal rest on, Monday, December 7th, 2015.

Richard was born on October 3, 1954, to the late Mary Elizabeth (Lancaster) Dowling and James P. Dowling in Manhattan, Kansas.

Richard attended Lee Elementary School and was a graduate of Manhattan High School. While at Manhattan High he met the love of his life, Debbie, they were married on November 21, 1972 in Council Grove, Kansas. She preceded him in death on November 23, 2013.

Richard was a humble, gracious and caring man who was a source of great strength to his family, friends and anyone he encountered. He made himself available to listen to all and offer well thought advice. Putting others before him was how he carried out each and every day of his life. Richard's smile and laugh was a ray of sunshine that illuminated the kindness in his heart. Richard's life and legacy has left a mark in many lives that will forever be cherished and missed.

Richard was employed at Griffith Lumber to which he devoted his life to. He was a wealth of knowledge in the building industry with an abundance of customers to which he considered friends whom will all miss him deeply. There is not a day that passed he was not available to help anyone accomplish the dream of remodeling or building a new home.

Richard was preceded in death by his parents, his wife; Debbi, a brother; Curtis, and one grandson, Tyler Dowling-Burnett. In memory of our parents we ask that you take a moment to hug your spouse, children, grandchildren, and friends or take a walk in the clear crisp air to reflect your love for those you find dear to you as time waits for no one.

Survivors include son, Brian (Christy), a daughter, Angie M. Dowlling-Burnett, (Tracy), both of Manhattan; a son, Travis (Cherylynn), of Baldwin City. Seven grandchildren; Austin, Mary, Taylor, Brianna, Tanner, Isabella (Izzy), and Adalynn (Addi); One soon to be granddaughter, Anne-Mae; one great grandson, Kadin. A sister, Patricia Parr (Hal) of Topeka; a brother Gregg Dowling, of British Columbia, Canada, as well as a niece and numerous nephews and friends.

Funeral services will be held Friday, December 11th, at 10:30 at the First Presbyterian Church, 801 Leavenworth, Manhattan, Kansas, with Pastor Patrick McLaughlin officiating.

Cremation has taken place. Inurnment will be held at a later date at the St. Patrick's Cemetery. Arrangements are being handled by Irvin-Parkview Funeral Home & Cremation, 1317 W. Poyntz Avenue, Manhattan, Kansas, 66502.

I sent you an E-mail a week ago but I do not know if you received such.I have had a few techinical problems with my computor.There were a nomber of E-mails that were left in my outbox.I received an E-mail from you sometime ago,in relation to a query about my late Grandfather Joseph George Dowling,born circa1892 in the city of Liverpool England,The late Joseph George being the son of Irish Immigrant Masterbootmakers,Joseph himself apprently was the product of a very hard upbringing as were so often the case in the nineteenth century and runaway to sea onboard a old Sailingship at the tender age of twelve,Joseph I were told by my late father his eldest son David Ruebeeen Dowling, jumped ship as an illlegal immigrant in Perth Western Australia,from where he was chased by West Australian Police across the Nullabour Plain,to the east coast where he finally setteled in the Capital City of Queensland Brisbane,where he lived out his life.

Joseph Married a Ruby Johnston the daughter of a Cobb&Co Coachdriver just before World War 1 ,to my knowledge he was one of the original Anzacs who landed at Gappoli in 1915 where he fought the Turks,I beleive he was also a member of the Australian Lighthorse Brigade later on in the first world war.

After the war he settled down to various jobs around Brisbane,never great jobs but times were difficult with the great depression in the late twenties and early thirties,Joseph and his wife Ruby had five children three of whom lived to adulthood, my father being the eldest David Rueben,the second was Mervyn George,then a girl Oliveen Ruby,Aunt Olive is the only one still alive and is not able to remember much since an accident in 1989.Therefore I have nobody to turn to out here to ask questions about my late Grandfathers life.When you last E-mailed me Brian you mentioned you could look up information on the 1891census if I could find more imformation but I am afraid this is difficult as I am the eldest of the present generation of Dowlingd in this part of the world and have nobody to make enquires with,so unless you can come up with something I have come to a deadend, hoping you willfind something in your resources and reply to my E-mail I remain Yours Sincerly David George Dowling.
